Why politicize what is a standard statistical question?

The stupid is breathtaking.

More of that conservative minority outrach. James Taranto is a wretched creature.

I notice that a lot of right wingers are desperately trying to use the same old DARVO tactics to explain away their losses in the election.

"The minorities are the real racists!" They never get tired of this utterly brain-dead BS.

Denial is great among the right-wingers. I think they know there are racists in the GOP, and that those who aren't racists tolerate them for political reasons. Nothing pisses me off more than someone telling me, who grew up under segregation, that I don't recognize racism when I see it, and that I shouldn't be offended about it. If the GOP is to move beyond this, its members must deal with the racists in its party. Until it does, it can forget about People of Color voting for republican politicians in large numbers for a long, long time. The GOPers do this racist sh*t and think we don't notice it. We do, and we don't like it. The racism in the GOP is one of the reasons they were surprised at our turnout on November 6. They thought there wouldn't be a backlash. They thought they had us cowed--until they saw our willingness to stand in lines for nine hours to vote. They were sent a message from us that will be hard for them to forget. They forgot how they paraded around making racist comments and laughing about it. Yeah, they thought it was funny. We didn't, and we let them know it by turning out to vote in large numbers. The result was that Romney, Ryan, Rove, and the other GOPers were "shocked" when Romney/Ryan lost the election. Payback is a mother*cker and sometimes karma can be a mean old b*tch.
